What does it cost to run a gubernatorial election in Wisconsin? About $164 million for the 2022 election, which smashed the previous record set in 2018. The upcoming State of Wisconsin Supreme Court election promises to make a run at its own spending record. Matt Rothschild, executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, joins host Tony Castañeda of the Thursday morning 8 O’Clock Buzz to discuss the extensive influence of outside money on local elections. Matt explained that the outcome of the State Supreme Court election could have huge impacts on fair maps for future elections.
